Working up some tracing routine

Here’s a fun little piece I draw. I just wanted to practice my tracing skills with Illustrator and work up some routine for my workflow. So I took it up as a habit to draw now and then whatever I saw interesting. Spotted this old Jofa helmet as a model because of  legendary hockey players Wayne Gretzky and Jari Kurri. Saw them skate again in the 2016 Heritage Classic and just picked it up. So there.

Here’s the basic line drawing.

And then fills applied

And eventually end up with some finishing touches with some custom made brushes I just had to get to try. Saw this awesome tutorial from Von Glitschka about how to make your own set of brushes and I just had to try them out myself.

And here they are once more side by side.
